Enterprise, Microfinance and Local Development

Enterprise, Microfinance and Local Development

The Enterprise, Microfinance and Local Development Programme uses the knowledge base of the ILO globally to design academies, courses and training packages. Training courses and academies focus on disseminating good practices and sound methodologies. Training draws on the expertise of the global team of ILO enterprise development and social finance specialists.

Enterprises are important sources of employment and decent work. Training in enterprise development covers good practice in supporting business creation and growth. Training on enterprise development also covers entrepreneurship (including women’s entrepreneurship), productivity, working conditions, the business enabling environment, value chains, corporate social responsibility, and the economic, social and environmental aspects of running a sustainable enterprise.  Microfinance training aims at better management of microfinance institutions to help them reach vulnerable poor women and men with financial services. Local development uses participatory approaches to improve the effectiveness of regional and municipal government agencies in developing local economies, reducing the impact of natural disasters, and for creating better jobs for women and men. Promoting decent work in the rural economy uses a multi-disciplinary approach to design employment policies, programmes and projects for disadvantaged rural communities.
